Near Big John’s Tavern. Use the slidebar to see the 2x lightened photo. To be honest, I’m not exactly sure what’s happening in this photo, it’s unlike any other “light flare” that can easily be debunked. For now, it’s simply noteworthy.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Big Red Barn/Big John’s Tavern: The word “barn” appeared on the digital spirit box word list just before I cleared it.

Pinckney Mansion Site:  The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 3.2mG (milligauss), 7.4mG, 10.1mG, 11.0mG, 12.0mG. The K-II EMF Meter gave readings of 15-20mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Richard”, “John” (still near Big John’s Tavern), “freedom”, “not welcome here anymore” (took as a cue to wrap up this part of your investigation).

The Onvoy device gave the letters “HHS” which is Sue Howard Hardy’s initials backwards, we discussed her story later in the evening.

Lodge Alley: The song lyric, “hit me with your best shot” was heard on a spirit box. We would be discussing dueling at the next location.

The Onvoy spelled out the words “sun”, and “lure”.

Philadelphia Alley: The K-II EMF Meter gave readings of 15mG, 20mG, and 25mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “go down”, “allow us”, “lovely”, “nice neighborhood”.

The Onvoy spelled out the word “pig”. Philadelphia Alley was once named “Cow Alley” because this is where the livestock was kept for the city of Charlestown.

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Jack” (John “Calico Jack” Rackham), “Philly” (still near Philadelphia Alley), “a woman’s voice needs to be heard” (it’s not uncommon to see/hear gender phrases like this when discussing Anne Bonny and Mary Read), “I’m dressed up”, “twenty-seven”, “twenty years”, “on the road”.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site:  The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 3.7mG (milligauss), 6.0mG, 15.9mG, 16.1mG and 34.1mG. The K-II EMF detector had spikes of 15-25mG.

Pairs of terms heard from different spirit boxes. There were enough that occurred in real time for me to separate them this way for relevancy.

  • “injuries” and “ouch”
  • “baby” and “devastation” Baby George died in June 1747.
  • “Texas” and “Austin” (found on the digital spirit box word list above)

Other terms heard on spirit boxes: “heat” (the mansion was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1861), “father”, “five five six”, “three”, “I’m not afraid”, “twenty-five”, “taxi”, “you’re dead”, “orange” (guest pointed out the “orange” representation on the map of the Great Fire of 1861).

Lodge Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “George” (as we were leaving the Pinckney Mansion site, could be relatable to one of three Georges: Eliza’s infant son, President Washington, or Eliza’s father, George Lucas), “Josh”, “Jefferson”, “whore” (on the resident list of Lodge Alley, there are a few “seamstresses”), “Cumberland” (we were passing Cumberland Street which is where the original Charlestown Wall stood), “forever more”, “Henry” (we’ve been getting clues to Eliza’s great nephew, Henry Laurens Pinckney in various locations).

Philadelphia Alley: The number “twenty” was heard on a spirit box.

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: The name “Carmen” was heard along with the number “six” (Sue Howard Hardy died six days after her stillborn child).

CLICK HERE TO VIEW ALL 55 PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN DURING YOUR INVESTIGATION.

Very first photo taken of the night. Big John’s Tavern. Large orb just left of center. Not a light flare due to the grain of the orb and shape. Though similar in size, the orb is not a reflection or light flare since the IR camera on the right-hand side of photo is faced in the opposite direction. Use the slidebar to see the lightened version of this photo.
Thermal Imaging Video

No anomalies detected in the spot check of the thermal imaging video. This video can and should be used as an EVP Audio as well.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site:  The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave the following readings: 3.5mG (milligauss), and 29.9mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “eleven, ninety-one” (11 being part of the date of the Great Fire of 1861 which destroyed the Pinckney Mansion: December 11), “children”, “kids”, “forty-three”, “fluids”, “Dr. Jeff” (we did have a Jeff on the team), “Indiana Jones” (see next paragraph), “Brittany”, “earthquake” (we discussed the alleged first death from the earthquake of 1886), “three zero one seven”, “Jesus”, “burn it down” (Great Fire of 1861), “declining economy”, “twenty-eight”, “child”, “president” (we discussed Washington who acted as a pallbearer at Eliza’s funeral).

Note about “Indiana Jones”: Though this could be considered laughable on a paranormal investigation, we’ve often seen where someone’s heritage, home state and/or name of a FUTURE investigator will be caught in real time. I wanted to point out that there is indeed a ghost hunter on October 29’s investigation named Brian and is from Indiana.

Lodge Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “heat” (there is evidence of fires that took place in the alley), “angel”, “try to survive”, “number one in the country”, “sister” (no other clues define this, but in the next alley where we discussed Dr. Ladd, who had a sister named Elizabeth, published the doctor’s poetry after his death) “John” (one of two names, Benjamin being the other, that are often seen/heard in this alley. See pages 12-13 of this document for the full roster of residents).

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “compel you”, “1-888” (the exact year of Sue Howard Hardy’s death. This link does NOT contain the cursed photo), “in the alley” (we were, in fact, in the alley).

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “looking for you”, “infantry”, “great in bed” (when linked with “number two” in the SBox findings, this could relate to John “Calico Jack” Rackham, the second lover we discussed of Anne Bonny), “hello”, “very scary”, “for crying out loud”, “obstruction of justice”, “wife”, “different from”.

The REM function of the Mel Meter had an Orange reading, indicating possible motion near the user.

The Onvoy device spelled out the name “Elsa”.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 1:10 “now, we would never take”
  • 9:07 “morning routine”
  • 15:10 “tables”
  • 21:58 “the strength”
  • 33:12 “home” Family/house/home is a common theme upon entering the Pinckney Mansion site.
  • 39:30 “women who marry”
  • 39:36 “ring on their finger” Different voice from the “women who marry”. I do not find this coincidental that we discussed Eliza’s uncanny marriage to Charles and these two phrases show themselves relatively close to each other.
  • 40:02 “make a promise” Charles Pinckney, Eliza’s nephew, introduced the Pinckney’s Promise to the Constitution.
  • 46:56 “three weeks”
  • 53:22 “Phillies” Eliza Lucas Pinckney is buried in Philadelphia.
  • 1:00:13 “hit rock bottom”
  • 1:08:39 “thirty-six months”
  • 1:16:05 “remember, it’s just a game”
  • 1:22:09 “of the king” Getting closer to Powder Magazine where we discussed Calico Jack and his ship, The Kingston.
  • 1:30:31 “ticking”
  • 1:37:39 (whistling) Still near Philadelphia Alley where we discussed The Whistling Doctor.
  • 1:45:58 “my hand” The term “hand” heard much earlier in real time while in Philadelphia Alley. See the photo of the brick with the handprint here.
  • 1:52:26 “one eye clearly on”
  • 1:59:49 “protection for ya”
  • 2:07:34 “potato”

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site:  The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 4.3mG (milligauss), 5.1mG, 7.2mG, 8.4mG, 19mG, 20mG, 30mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a Red reading indicating motion near the user, quite possibly touching the antenna of the device.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Taylor”, “red” (what color is the Big Red Barn), “police officer” (we did have the word “cop” on the digital word list, interesting if nothing else), “crime”, “ocean”, “Jesus”, “three two one”

Lodge Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “damage”, “oh”, “Old Henry” (there’s clues throughout previous investigations that point to Henry Laurens Pinckney in random locations).

The Onvoy device gave the follow letters “B-I-H” which could be Benjamin Hopkins initials with an interfering “I”. See the full roster of residents of pages 12-13 of this document.

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “surgery” (we were discussing The Whistling Doctor), “hand” (see “my hand” in the SBox findings above), “Bible” (common to see/hear religious terms when near St. Philip’s Church), “forty”.

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “you can see it’s real”, “legitimate”, “I miss you”, “Detroit”, “touchdown”, “New York” (these last two terms are relatable to Big John Cannady discussed at the top of the investigation. However, Cannady’s burial site is unknown, but is possible to be in the vicinity of the Powder Magazine since this has happened on previous investigations), “freedom”.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

The Bigs (Big John’s Tavern/Big Red Barn): The term “PAD” was fond on the Onvoy. A small EMF spike found on the Mel Meter EMF function of 5.1mG (milligauss).

Pinckney Mansion Site:  The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 5.5mG and 39.5mG.  The K-II EMF meter had several 15mG readings.

Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “help”, “two one six”, “one four five”, “John” (still close to Big John’s Tavern), “Jefferson”, “don’t inject that in me”, “all of me”, “international” (Eliza Lucas was an international businesswoman), “don’t fall, I’m your brother”, “it burned” (The Great Fire of 1861 destroyed the Pinckney Mansion), “eighteen”, “R-A”, “five”.

Lodge Alley: The letters “WADOW” showed up on the Onvoy, a very close spelling to Widow, as we were leaving the Pinckney Mansion site. The phrase “we see the people” heard on a spirit box.

Philadelphia Alley: The phrases “just be wise” and “Monday Morning, 9AM” were heard on spirit boxes. This one gets a little touchy. Some stories of Dr. Ladd claim he died ten days after the duel, others say four. If it was indeed ten, that that puts the dueling date on Monday, October 23, 1786.

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a RED reading indicating a direct response and motion near the user. Asking Anne Bonny’s hair color.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “labor” (we did discuss Anne Bonny’s children), “in the tree” (related to a myth that Stede Bonnet’s pirates still hang in White Point Garden), “Elijah”, “1984”, “God” (common to hear religious terms near St. Philip’s Church), “Henry” (Henry Laurens Pinckney, Eliza’s great nephew, is buried at the Circular Congregational Church on the other side of the Powder Magazine), “eight four four”, “777” (this number often shows up at this location for a number of reasons, mainly due to Dr. Ladd’s birthday of July 7 or 7/7), “believe the church”. “September” (see the link in Henry above)

The initals “AB” showed up on the Onvoy; Anne Bonny.

EVP Audio

The EVP Audio holds all the histories discussed during your investigation to be used as a point of reference, along with any EVPs that may have slipped through.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 0:51 “not the kind of life”
  • 10:56 “only one”
  • 16:30 “shovels silently” Not only is this a creepy phrase, but terms around gardening are often seen/heard while near or at the Pinckney Mansion site.
  • 22:27 “garden” (song lyric) Another gardening term; literally.
  • 28:44 “Bible”
  • 34:41 “contact us”
  • 41:23 “foundation problem”
  • 49:13 “twenty-two dollars” This number is relevant to Eliza Lucas in two ways: she was born in 1722 and she married Charles Pinckney at the age of 22, he was 45.
  • 56:31 “lady”
  • 1:01:46 “fifteen yard line”
  • 1:08:56 “six two eight” This one is very interesting considering that “Benjamin Franklin” was heard in real time not long before this timestamp. On June 28, 1776 (six two eight), Benjamin Franklin was one of the men that was reading the Declaration of Independence to Congress while Carolinians were battling the British Navy. June 28th is also known as Carolina Day.
  • 1:16:32 “we lose him” We would’ve been getting closer to Philadelphia Alley where we discussed dueling.
  • 1:24:13 “watch yourself”
  • 1:32:17 “welcome to the family”
  • 1:41:02 “drift away” (song lyric)
  • 1:41:53 “coat” John “Calico Jack” Rackham was known for his fancy jackets.
  • 1:53:02 “exit”
  • 2:02:32 “fashion” Calico Jack was considered a fashionable pirate.
  • 2:09:47 “simple time”

Thermal Imaging Video

*Starting with marker 38:08 in Philadelphia Alley, the contrast of “white” showing up randomly is from the sky coming into view at the top (right of center). With the sky being measured a much colder temperature, the contrast of color to the white must be noted by the variance in temperature. In other words, debunked.

No anomalies detected during the spot check of the thermal imaging video. Both videos can and should also be used as EVP Audio.

Infrared Lighting Video
Marker 5:42, Powder Magazine. the “orb” caught in real time was indeed an insect passing by. See the Field Guide for teh criteria used to debunk “orbs” in this camera. Speed, size, shape.

No anomalies detected during the spot check of the IR Video.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site:  The EMF Function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 7.1mG (milligauss), 7.5mG, 13.7mG and 28.3mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a flickering Green reading indicating motion near the user. The K-II EMF detector gave readings of 10-15mG.

Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “what”, “slave”, “natural”, “Benjamin Franklin” (see “six two eight” in the SBox findings), “red” (What color is the Big Red Barn?), “number two” (another investigator was asking which Eliza we were talking to, number one or number two), “if you’re lucky”, “seventy-five”, “John” (Still near Big John’s Tavern).

Lodge Alley: EMF spikes from the Mel Meter when placed directly on the Belgian Blocks ranged from 4.7-5.0mG. The phrase “on a tour” was heard on a spirit box.

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: The song lyrics “girls just wanna have fun” was heard. Believe it or not, this is a common lyric heard after discussing Anne Bonny and Mary Read.

The Only gave the letters “SS” and “HH” giving us the initials of Sue Howard Hardy. This link does NOT contain the cursed photo.

Noteworthy to mention that the SB11-ANC spirit box malfunctioned while starting at this location. All devices receive a full charge or fully recharged batteries before every investigation and are capable of lasting 6-8 hours on each device.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

The SBox recording is cut short. This recording ends about the time we were leaving Philadelphia Alley. This is either caused by user error or an anomalous event. Rest assured that all devices are fully charged and all SD Cards are erased before every investigation to prevent this from happening.

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 2:06 “second one”
  • 2:29 “with the word of God”
  • 8:02 “for as long as I can remember”
  • 11:54 “take care of his family”

  • 23:21 “younger”
  • 27:46 “Wilson”
  • 34:47 “well-covered”
  • 39:41 “Sunday, December fourth” Also heard in real time. Using the “December” from this phrase along with the misspelled eleven (elevyun) from the Onvoy, we have the date of the Great Fire of 1861 which occurred on December 11th.
  • 45:35 “I am the one” (song lyric)
  • 49:54 “Phillip Simmons” On our way to Lodge Alley, which was once known as Simmons Alley.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site:  The K-II EMF detector had spikes of 10-15mG (milligauss). The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave a spike of 13.8mG.

Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “three two one”, “Alfred”, “Charles” (one of three Charles Pinckneys), “two”, “God”, “evolving”, “self”, “eight”, “all day”, “people around me”, “looking for people”

The Onvoy device gave the following succession of letters: “E-L-E-V-Y-U-N” (See “December fourth” in the SBox findings above).

Lodge Alley: When placing the EMF detector on the Belgian Blocks, readings of 15mG (K-II Meter), 2.7mG, 4.0-4.6mG, and 6.6mG (Mel Meter) were found.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “this house”, “Kelly”, “Joe” (vague relation to our next space where we discussed Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd).

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “after Nick” (common to find my name in many locations around Charleston), “Saturday, November fourth” (Noteworthy that Dr. Ladd died in November; it was not a Saturday or the fourth).

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “three seven nine two eight”, “now there’s some distance”, “mum’s the word”.

The Onvoy spelled out the word “HALL”

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 1:04 “monthly system”
  • 1:15 “could be tempted”
  • 7:46 “at the table”
  • 13:26 “thirteen years”
  • 20:04 “be careful”
  • 25:29 “high ceiling”
  • 25:41 “you can redeem” This was about the time that Kristy and I were discussing 5 Church Restaurant which used to be The Redeemer.
  • 34:18 “pre-political” Vague, but most Pinckney men were politicians.
  • 41:13 “to serve”
  • 47:44 “I want to be a planner (planter?)”
  • 53:52 “we went to work…right away”

  • 1:59:45 “on the other hand”
Thermal Imaging Video
Marker 4:59, Pinckney Mansion Site. Noteworthy temperature anomaly of 30.5° versus the ambient 61.9°. This is a 31.4° difference. The camera moves too quickly to further analyze the cold area, but no other temperatures in the 30s were noted around this time. Also, notice that the sky, which should be a much colder temperature, is also in the shot.
Infrared Lighting Video

No anomalies detected in the spot check of the IR Video. Both videos should also be used as EVP Audio.

  • 12:25 “older brother”
  • 13:33 “I’ll never forget it”

  • 20:51 “in London” Eliza Lucas’s family is from England.
  • 28:20 “angry”

  • 1:44:00 “so crucial”
  • 1:51:16 “how much time is left”
  • 1:51:48 “seven” This number shows up for a number of reasons and based on other evidence discovered, it’s likely related to Dr. Ladd with a birthday of July 7 or 7/7.
  • 2:01:19 “powerless”
  • 2:08:34 (whistling) We were still only one block away from Philadelphia Alley where we discussed The Whistling Doctor.
Thermal Imaging Video
Marker 1:11:47, Powder Magazine. Small and questionable anomaly on the left hand side of the frame. This “cold”spot warms up as we get closer to it.
Infrared Lighting Video

The orb we thought we caught in real time was debunked as an insect. No anomalies detected in my spot check of the IR Video. Both videos should also be used as an EVP Audio.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 3.2mG (milligauss), 4.8mG, 10.4mG, 15mG, 19.1mG, 25.6mG, 33mG, 38mG, 42.7mG, 51mG, 55mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter showed Green and Blue readings indicating motion near the user.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “girl”, “old man”, “Puerto Rico”, “equity”, “somebody to love”, “fire” (the Pinckney Mansion was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1861),  “Henry” (Henry Laurens Pinckney, the great nephew of Eliza Lucas, was a newspaper owner/editor for The Mercury. He is buried at the Circular Congregational Church), “sixteen”.

Lodge Alley: A small spike of 2.8mG discovered on the EMF detection of the Mel Meter when placed directly on the Belgian Blocks.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Ed”, “here”, “during the summer”, and “fire” (there was evidence of fires that occurred here in the archaeological report of this alley).

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: The Onvoy device gave us the following properly spelled out terms “clue”, “bane” and “his”.

Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “we’re pregnant” (with no other clues relative to the Sue Howard Hardy story, this phrase is the interpretation of what Anne Bonny and Mary Read shouted out to Judge Nicholas Lawes: “we plead our bellies”), “Ralph” (still close to Philadelphia Alley where we discussed the doctor’s duel with Ralph Isaacs), “Bob”, “not ready”, “gunshots” (more clues to dueling in Philadelphia Alley), “five hundred dollars”, “wasn’t very pleasant”, “ninety”, “seven” (see seven found in the SBox findings above), “slayer” (very unique term that was also found on the digital spirit box word list after this was heard in real time. See the EVP Audio to hear how this played out.)

EVP Audio

The EVP Audio has all the histories we discussed along with any EVPs that may have come through.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

The SBox seems to have stopped recording after only eight minutes and 44 seconds. This is possibly user error or possibly anomalous. The SD cards get erased before each investigation to eliminate any technical errors.

Even more strange is that this recording depicts a much faster radio sweep than normally used on these investigations and then slows down in the last 20 seconds or so to the normal slow sweep. This could explain the struggle we had with this spirit box during our investigation.

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 1:13 “fifty”
  • 1:36 “that’s all”
  • 2:04 “letter A”
  • 3:20 “Gary”
  • 5:45 “food”
  • 8:14 “solution”
  • 8:34 “seventy” Eliza Lucas died at the age of 70 in 1793.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 3.6mG (milligauss), 4.3mG, 8.5mG, 12.5mG and 22.4mG. The K-II EMF detector gave readings of 20-25mG with 25mG being this device’s max reading.

Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “leave a restaurant” (the Pinckney Mansion site was a restaurant named Molly Darcy’s in the early 2000s), “people”, “you wanna have a bad day by the streets”, “Jesus walking here”, “holy spirit”, “there was one”.

The Onvoy device spelled out “GENA” and “QUIT” (which we took as our cue to end this part of the investigation).

Lodge Alley: A steady 15mG found on the K-II EMF detector and the EMF function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 6.5mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “understand your frustration”, “huge storm”.

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes “Philadelphia” (doesn’t get any clearer than this), “four one three three”, “friends” (vague but still relevant to the relationship between Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd and Ralph Isaacs).

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “prisoner” (Anne Bonny and Mary Read were both held captive in 1720), “tuberculosis”, “Chris” (noteworthy that two different spirit box users heard this name), “Bruce”, “visitors are always welcome”, “ninety-eight”, “tourist”, “Paul”, “Richard”, “seven” (John Calhoun, our 7th Vice President, rests on the western half of St. Philip’s cemetery), “twelve” (heard twice), “I feel great”, “eight oh seven”, “baby” (possibly connected to all other Sue Howard Hardy terms found on the digital list above), “one that arrives”.

The REM Function of the Mel Meter gave a Yellow reading indicating motion near the user.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Big John’s Tavern/Big Red Barn: EMF spikes from the Mel Meter: 2.6mG (milligauss), 3.9mG, 4.1mG and 15.1mG. The last reading is anomalous to this location due to the low amount of readings found here.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 16.1mG, 23mG, 41mG, 59mG, 79mG, 90mG. The K-II EMF Meter had readings of 15-20-25mG with 25mG being this device’s max reading.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: The letter “E” heard several times, “shot” (see left in SBox findings above), “one”, “eleven” (part of the date of the Great Fire of 1861 which destroyed the Pinckney Mansion: December 11), “child”, “abortion”, “a thousand dollars”, “cash”, “key to helping autism”, “parking lot”, “heaven”, “eight”, “find a girl”, “Supreme Court Justice”

Lodge Alley: The Mel Meter gave EMF spikes of 4.6-4.9mG and 6.2-6.9mG when placed directly on the Belgian Blocks. The K-II EMF detector had a steady reading of 15mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Jeff”, “homeless guy”, “heartache and pain”, “four”, “I’m not here”.

The Onvoy device provided the initials “BH” relatable to Benjamin Hopkins, a resident in 1801. See pages 12-13 of this archaeological document for the full list of residents.

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “Monroe”, “residential”, “I’m not going”, “Tom”, “B”.

Powder Magazine/St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Isaac” (still close to Philadelphia Alley where Dr. Ladd dueled with Ralph Isaacs), “command of twelve”, “six two eight” (a bit of stretch, but Anne Bonny’s trial for piracy took place on November 28, 1720), “doctor” (Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd), “victim”, “stay safe”, “eighty-one”, “you’re taking care of”, “Jack” (John “Calico Jack” Rackham) “happy happy”.

EVP Audio

The first recording has all the histories we discussed to be used as a point of reference along with any EVPs that may have slipped through.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 0:02 “worship”
  • 5:59 “head on”
  • 12:58 “ask God”
  • 13:05 “1987”
  • 20:34 “twelve” A second digit from the date of the Great Fire of 1861 which destroyed the Pinckney Mansion. December 11, 1861.
  • 28:00 “George” Could be one of three Georges. Washington who served as a pallbearer to Eliza Lucas’s funeral; Baby George, Eliza’s son; George Lucas, Eliza’s father.
  • 35:54 “New York” Still close to Big John’s Tavern; he played for the 1947 New York Giants.
  • 42:59 “or famine”
  • 49:35 “football game” Close to Big John’s Tavern.
  • 56:09 “October” A bit easy, but Charles Pinckney, Eliza’s nephew and signer of the Constitution was born in October and died in October.
  • 1:01:01 “three”
  • 1:08:36 “kingdom”
  • 1:14:04 (whistling) Getting closer to Philadelphia Alley where we discussed The Whistling Doctor.
  • 1:22:07 “judge not”
  • 1:28:45 “too many people”
  • 1:36:35 “protect”
  • 1:44:15 “for the goddess in you”
  • 1:44:21 “what shall I choose” A bit of a stretch, but my mind goes to the gender crossing between male and female by Anne Bonny.
  • 1:52:38 (possibly female disembodied voice) Although the words cannot be made out clearly, this voice needs further analysis.
  • 2:00:44 “I don’t understand”
  • 2:08:53 “the will” Anne Bonny’s father was William Cormac.
Thermal Imaging Video

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Big John’s Tavern/Big Red Barn: The phrase “pick up on the script” was heard on a spirit box.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 14.1mG (milligauss), 15.3mG, 18.7mG, 29mG, 31mG, 31.1mG, 36mG, 41.3mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “eleven” (part of the Great Fire of 1861 date), “ninety-eight”, “put it out” (heard when asking if there was a fire in this location), “fire” (Great Fire of 1861).

The Onvoy device gave us the word “hip” which could have a relation to Thomas Pinckney who was shot in his left leg before being captured by the British during the Battle of Camden.

Lodge Alley: The Mel Meter gave readings of 3.3mG and 4.1mG when placed directly on the Belgian Blocks.

Powder Magazine: The Onvoy device provided the following:

  • HTHS: unscrambled, we get the initials of Sue Howard Hardy.
  • PAT
  • SIR
  • SUN
  • TUX

Terms heard on the spirit boxes: “I’m still here”, “they are so”, “Peter”, “between the light and darkness”, “Stuart” (we had a Stuart on our team), “James” (James Bonny, Anne Bonny’s first husband), “A Christian was called”.

The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a Purple reading indicating motion near the user.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 6.8mG, 22mG, 45.1mG, 54mG, 62mG. These are astronomical numbers for this location.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “David”, “no help”, “thirteen”, “two”, “after school”, “not yet”, “look”, “forty million”, “thirty-one”, “here’s your number”, “Charles” (one of three Charles relative to this location), “festival”, “medical”, “hi” (possibly disembodied), “leave me alone” (cue to end the session due to the same phrase heard in a disembodied voice prior to this investigation).

The jumbled letters of “E-L-I-Z” were found on the Onvoy device.

Lodge Alley: EMF spikes of 3.5-3.9mG and a 5.1mG from the Mel Meter when placed directly on the Belgian Blocks. The terms/phrases “I don’t want it” and “free” were heard on spirit boxes.

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Megan”, “Manic Monday” (the alleged date of the duel between Dr. Ladd and Ralph Isaacs was October 23, 1786 and was indeed a Monday), “8AM” (the time of the duel???), “whistle” (heard twice while discussing the Whistling Doctor), “we got a visitor”.

The Onvoy device provided the initials “R-I” (Ralph Isaacs or Rhode Island)

Powder Magazine: EMF spikes of 7.1mG and  29.1mG (and lots of zeros) were discovered here. This is anomalous due to the lack of EMF spikes that are found here.

Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “widow”, “life”, “talk to them”, “two one” (Mary Read died in 1721), “gate” (we discussed the gate at Philadelphia Alley), “unintentional”, “fire”, “turn it”, “show us” (right before I showed you the photograph of Sue Howard Hardy’s apparition), “ship” (a piratey term), “circle”, “senorita” (noteworthy to mention that most guests on this investigation were of Spanish descent), “diplomatic” (when asking Anne Bonny’s first husband, James), “special”, “together”, “I wish  you were here”, “Kathleen”, “Jeffrey”, “fifty-three”, “mother”, “failure”, “she was very sick”, “housewife”, “Bonnie(y)” (Anne Bonny).

Focus Terms with great relation to William Cormac’s affair: “widow”, “mother”, “she was very sick”, “housewife”.

EVP Audio

The EVP Audio has all the histories we discussed during your investigation along with any EVPs that may have slipped through. These are voices we wouldn’t be able to hear without the aid of electronics.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 0:09 “the Christians”
  • 6:40 “love”
  • 13:59 “take it all in”
  • 21:11 “the biggest” Vague, but we were near Big John’s Tavern at the time.
  • 27;26 “lay down”
  • 38:47 “that’s what we do”
  • 45:31 “he’s a competitor”
  • 51:30 “thirteen”
  • 59:19 “1793” It doesn’t get any clearer than this! This is the year Eliza Lucas died. We would’ve been discussing her death around this time.
  • 1:04:15 “a few days after this” Along with “Christmas” heard in real time, Eliza Lucas’s birthday is December 27, 1722.
  • 1:11:01 “a little…confused”
  • 1:17:43 “by the end of that day”
  • 1:25:49 “book” No other verifying clues found, but Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd wrote poetry while he lived in Charleston. His sister, Elizabeth, published his poetry into one volume after his death. The Literary Remains of Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd.
  • 1:32:09 “one seven” The number seven is often found near/at Philadelphia Alley due to Dr. Ladd’s birthday of July 7, or 7/7.
  • 1:39:05 “listening”
  • 1:48:18 “six” Sue Howard Hardy died six days after her stillborn child. This link does NOT contain the cursed photo.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 5.7mG (milligauss), 5.8mG, 13.1mG, 16.1mG, 25mG, 28mG, 32mG, 46mG, 48mG, 66mG. These are way above the average spike of 18-22mG that is normally found here. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a blue reading indicating motion near the user.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Daniel” (Eliza’s daughter, Harriot, married Daniel Horry), “history”, “palmetto”, “father”, “Nigeria”, “Astros”, “Christmas” (Eliza’s birthday is two after Christmas. Odd term to hear in October), “dark deserted island”.

Lodge Alley: The Mel Meter gave readings of 4.9-5.7mG when placed directly on the Belgian Blocks. The term “girl” was heard as we exited the alley on a spirit box.

Powder Magazine: The terms “doctor” (still close to Philadelphia Alley where we discussed The Whistling Doctor), and “merci” were heard on spirit boxes.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Big John’s Tavern/Big Red Barn: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave a 9.5mG (milligauss) reading near the Big Red Barn. Terms heard on spirit boxes: “sad”, “gone”, “what’s at dawn”.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 7.0mG, 14.4mG, 23.5mG, and 35.9mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a purple reading indicating motion near the user.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 3.0mG (milligauss), 3.5mG, 9.5mG, 11.1mG and 40mG. The K-II EMF Meter showed readings of 10mG, 15mG, 20mG and 25mG (25mG being the K-II’s max reading).

Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “forty”, “first” (when asking about the president who served as a pallbearer at Eliza Lucas’s funeral: George Washington), “five”, “96993” (vague, but the tail end of this gives the year of Eliza’s death: 1793), “one oh seven three”, “with or without you”, “family photo”, “practice”, “west” (see “fireworks” in the SBox findings).

Lodge Alley: When the Mel Meter was placed on the Belgian Blocks that make up the alley, a reading of 4.9mG was found.

Terms found on spirit boxes: “Luke”, “past here”, “Jefferson”, “Montgomery”, “Jeremiah”, and “Benjamin”. See pages 12-13 of this archaeological dig report for the full roster of names of those who lived here. Benjamin and John are two common names found here; both lived here in 1801.

Philadelphia Alley: The EMF function of the Mel Meter showed a small 3.8mG spike.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “twenty-five”, “look up”, “residential” (Philadelphia Alley is considered residential past the halfway point), “the house”.

Powder Magazine: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “darkness of evil”, “four days”, “five hundred”, “crew” (a piratey term if I ever heard one), “Sweet Annie” (we were discussing Anne Bonny at this location), “Louisa”, “Sarah”, “September”, “football”, “stadium”. These last three terms could possibly have a relation to Big John Cannady due to his unknown burial. He was born in September, died in September, and the added two football themed terms tie this together, but will remain a mystery.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Big John’s Tavern/Big Red Barn: The phrase “little girl died” was heard on the SBox spirit box. The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave a 9.5mG (milligauss) reading.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 4.2mG, 12.1mG, 12.3mG, 14mG and 20.7mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a Yellow reading indicating motion near the user.

Terms heard on the SBox: “sixty-four”, “final four” (Eliza and Charles had four children), “twenty-three”, “everyone”, “blood” (what color is the Big Red Barn), “health plan”, “I’m James”, “the dock”, “the father”, “eleven” (this, along with December on the Digital spirit box word list, gives us the date of the fire that destroyed the mansion: December 11, 1861), “new equipment”.

The Onvoy spelled out the word “COAT”. Although a different spelling, I took this as a clue that Eliza’s son, Charles Cotesworth Pinckey may have been with us.

Lodge Alley: The EMF function of the Mel Meter showed spikes of 4.2mG to 6.6mG, along with separate readings of 7.0mG and 8.8mG when placed on the Belgian Blocks that make up the alley.

Terms heard on the SBox: “four five two”, “two weeks”, “school”, “make me”, “fifty million”, “Chris” (Chris was part of the team), “twenty-third”, “hospital” (we were about to discuss the Whistling Doctor in the next alley).

Philadelphia Alley: The EMF function of the Mel Meter showed a small 3.5mG spike.

Terms heard on the SBox: “James” (possibly related to James Bonny, Anne Bonny’s first husband. We discussed him at the next location), “nine three two”, “five”, “seven hundred”, “eight”.

The Onvoy gave the letters “S-H-H”, the initials of Sue Howard Hardy, buried on the other side of the Philadelphia Alley wall inside St. Philip’s eastern half of the cemetery.

Powder Magazine: The Onvoy provided these sets of initials “C-P” (Charles Pinckney buried at St. Philip’s. “S-H” Again, with Sue Howard Hardy.

Terms heard on the SBox “on the holy” (more religious terms found near St. Philip’s), “money”, “spirit”, “of one eight hundred”, “four four” (Charles and Eliza married in 1744, relevant due to Charles being buried nearby), “four five two”, “power”, and “red sheet” (this color has been showing up in more ways than one. My teams will ask Anne Bonny to show her hair color on the REM function of the Mel Meter [meaning she has to touch it], and often we’ll hear/see the word “red” instead).

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 0:04 “ninety-eight”
  • 5:10 “hear the gospel”
  • 10:23 “Wilson”
  • 16:47 “breathing”
  • 26:16 “seventy-nine” This along with “SEPTEMBER” heard in real time, gives us two clues to Big John’s death: he was 79 years old when he died on September 23, 2002.
  • 32:18 “replace the roof…big job” Take a look at the Pinckney Mansion picture again after its destruction from the Great Fire of 1861.
  • 38:45 “window”
  • 46:20 “censorship”
  • 52:59 “if you’re seventy” Eliza Lucas Pinckney was 70 years old when she passed away in 1793.
  • 1:00:13 “about a mile”
  • 1:00:27 “human race”
  • 1:06:27 “Simmons” Lodge Alley was once named Simmons Alley.
  • 1:12:29 “Ray Charles” I would normally look at just “Charles” but we weren’t close enough to St. Philip’s yet to make the determination that this might be Charles Pinckney who is buried there.
  • 1:20:00 “thirty-six month”
  • 1:25:21 “HS” Sue Howard Hardy’s initials reversed. This link does NOT contain the cursed photo.
  • 1:31:14 “step two”
  • 1:38:59 “close to eighty”
  • 1:44:09 “hospital”
